I understand the desire but i would think about the consequences if you end up feeling like you look worse than before in your own eyes?
An ex gf of mine, a pretty much perfect looking blue eyed all-american cheerleader type, got her breasts and lips and eyes done in her mid 20s. I can understand why she did it, cause she felt like she didn't look the way she wanted even though everyone around her thought she was pretty.
I can't see anyway, after the work, she couldn't of regretted it. It came out bad. She already had self-esteem issues, how much worse are they now?
In a way, it's almost riskier for the people who feel they need these procedures, because they have more to lose. I guess the surgery you are considering isn't too risky, but what's the cost in reinforcing the idea that you need to change this about yourself? Isn't there just going to be a new thing that you are missing after the "new you" becomes the regular you? 5-10 years from now there is going to be new wrinkles and new whatever...you aren't going to run out of things to fix most likely.
Would the money, energy, time just not be better spent on more practical methods of self-improvement?
Its gay men like you that led me to hating myself and trying to kill myself threw a soft suicide for over a decade of my life
It's good you can identify that. I sometimes struggle with the reasons why i want to kill myself, in those brief moments when i give it consideration.
Two things that make me the most positive about why it's silly, is the idea of future technologies and the realisation of how fast time passes. No need to call for the cheque, the waiter will be here soon enough.
That's also sort of my feeling an medical procedures. I will wait maybe 20-30 more years and then hopefully they'll have shit more perfected.
